Wrong-way Texas car accident leaves 1 dead, others injured

Driving while intoxicated has been linked to many wrong-way accidents on Texas highways in the past several years. This is especially prevalent late at night, when the posted signage may not be as noticeable as it is during the day. A recent car accident near Port Arthur is the latest example of how devastating this type of crash can be.

According to police officers, three vehicles were involved in an early morning wreck on Highway 69. The first vehicle was traveling northbound on the southbound side of the road when the driver hit another car head-on. A second southbound car struck the first two cars shortly after the initial crash. The driver of the northbound vehicle who initiated the car accident was critically injured and transported to a local hospital.

The driver of the first southbound car was gravely injured and later died at a local medical center. The passenger in that car was also critically injured and treated at a different hospital. The driver of the second southbound car suffered minor injuries. Police say that intoxication could have played a role in this accident, and the investigation is ongoing.

In the wake of such a catastrophic car accident, survivors and family members are fully entitled to seek legal representation. The surviving victims of such a terrible wreck may need financial support for mounting medical bills due to injuries suffered in the wreck and lost wages due to recovery time. Likewise, the family of a deceased victim may need compensation to defray funeral costs or to make up for the loss of a primary provider. A personal injury lawyer in Texas can best work with families in this situation to understand the options available.
